In the context of a wider commitment to promote the 2014 International Year of Family Farming (IYFF), the International Land Coalition has supported a global research project on “Family Farming and People-Centred Land Governance: Exploring Linkages, Sharing Experiences, and Identifying Gaps” in which seven civil society and research organisations, selected through an open call, participated.

The project investigates the linkages between family farming and land governance, policy recommendations, and the role of different actors to upscale the contribution of family farmers. The project has benefited from the technical contribution of a wider network of multilateral and civil society organisations.
